Make a Difference Justin Tarte)

Adapted from Justin Tarte - Life of an Educator... Helping educators to grow both professionally and personally by sharing and collaborating.        http://justintarte.blogspot.com  

 I have contemplated the many ways an Educator can make a difference no matter what outside influences there may be...here we go!’


1) - Say "hello" to as many students as possible tomorrow and ask them how they are doing...

2) - When a student struggles with something...reassure them that everything will be ok...

3) - If something you did in class worked out wonderfully...take time to share what you did!

4) - Take a moment to thank someone who has recently helped you...

5) - Write a short note about something a student did well...and then give it to him/her...

6) - Help a colleague troubleshoot a problem he/she may be having...be the half full glass...

7) - Praise a student for demonstrating an act of courage or high character to another student...

8) - Be patient and don't overreact...there's most likely a reason that it happened...

9) - Try something new and take a risk...the worst thing that can happen is you learn...

10) - Share this with a colleague first thing tomorrow morning...

I hope you enjoy making a difference tomorrow!
